We pride ourselves on our commitment to ensuring our children maximise their learning potential. At Lincoln Heights School we develop self-belief, self confidence and self esteem. Lincoln Heights School is a place of fun and laughter, hard work and achievement, friends and family. As a school community we recognise the place of Maori while respecting, including and celebrating all cultures in our school community.
Literacy and numeracy are core business at our school; however we provide a broad curriculum that is relevant to the needs of our students and their futures.

Parents and caregivers- this is your school. You are welcome anytime- in fact we expect that all families will play an active part in the life of our school. Through our Give Me Five Programme we ask that each parent provide five hours of service to the school each year. Please see the office or your child’s teacher to offer your assistance. We value the partnership between home and school. This year will see the Community Hub open as well as a Playgroup. We hope you will make use of these new opportunities to connect with others, learn new skills and strengthen existing ones. Look out for more about these in upcoming newsletters.
Our Board of Trustees provide effective leadership in areas of school governance. They are fully committed to the school vision and our school goals. Wendy Chambers is the Board Chair and can be contacted through the school office. Our active and supportive PTA is led by Haley Kelly. The PTA have a face book page- if you wish to receive updates about school events ‘like’ their page.
Should you have any inquiries, please do not hesitate to contact the school via the website, in person at the office, through a note via your child, via phone or by email. As a Principal my door is always open- Feel free to pop in for a chat anytime. We are very proud of our school and we hope you enjoy exploring our website. I trust that 2014 will be another great year as we think and learn together.
